Lifting, Handling, Manipulating



The Yaplex Flash
Loads from 10 Kgs up to 400 Kgs


The Amazing New Yaplex Flash is a revolutionary new product development specifically designed to remove the requirement for unsightly pipes and cables.

It incorporates as standard wireless remote control technology for the up and down function with all other movement via gentle hand pressure as the load is always in balance.


The machine comes in 3 variants. Low headroom (2400mm high max) with an added safety feature of a double rope. The Standard version (3000mm high max) for lifting up to 1600 mm high and the Rigid version which allows off set loads of up to 400mm at half the price of a conventional Manipulator.

It is ideal for such operations as machine tool loading, reaching into ovens, lifting from enclosures, loading and un-loading paint lines, loading presses etc.
The handler incorporates an auto weight sense pneumatic circuit which once the load has been lifted, allows movement via gentle hand pressure on the component in any direction, up or down.
Alternative circuits are available.

The system is completely failsafe and will never release the product in mid air due to loss of air supply or any other reason. In the event of air supply failure, the handler will retain the product and gradually lower to the floor in a controlled manner.
